Welcome to our 3rd Annual most Creative and Inspirational Halloween Costume EVER post!

If you want to see our post from last year click here.  Want to go waaaaay back to the year before that, click here.

You are welcome in advance.

Robin-Thicke-Miley-Cyrus-Halloween
Robin Thicke & Miley Cyrus:
This is probably the most obvious couples costume of this year.  I mean, hello, pop culture. #obvious #mileyisaskank #RobinThickeisBeetlejuice.If you go as this don’t quote our blog.  We are so much better than this.
Beetlejuice-halloweenBeetlejuice:
Wear this and you can weed out anyone at the bar who is underage.  If anyone comes up to you and says, “Why do you look like Robin Thicke after putting a knife in the toaster” or “Where’s Miley?”  they are clearly too young for you bro.
Ask them where they were when the Blue Jays won the world series.  If they look at you, confused, kick’em out of the bar or party you are at.

Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball: Less obvious pop culture/trendy halloween costume.  We approve of you quoting us on this costume, but only if you are male.  Girls, get your heads outta the trash and put some clothes on.

Duck Dynasty:
Beards, bandanas and camo.  Easy peasy. Get extra bonus points at the party you attend by bringing a delicious slow cooked squirrel.  We guarantee you will be invited back next year.
ed-sheeran-halloween
Ed Sheeran:
Are you extremely pale and unfortunate looking? Then this is the costume for you! Just strap on a dirty, ugly, ginger wig and you are good to go!
Are you an extremely pale and unfortunate looking ginger? Then you just saved some money on a dirty, ugly, ginger wig!
Long Island Medium-halloween
Theresa Caputo from Long Island Medium:
The great thing about this costume is you can reuse the wig you wore a few years ago when you went as Kate from (John and) Kate plus 8.
Rick Campanelli: This is a great costume for those douchey guys that don't like to actually dress up.  Although it take a little prep work.  Make sure you teeth are freshly whiten,  and you've hit the tanning bed atleast twice prior to Halloween.  Just throw on your nicest suit, plop an ET Canada sticker on a microphone and boom you're Rick Campenelli.  We strongly suggest you read this very informative interview with Rick so you can really understand who you are dressed as, it will blow your mind.

Shark Week: I stole this from another site that has some pretty cool ideas.  Don't click the link though, stay on our site.

Rookie of the Year: Um hello probably one of the most classic baseball movies of all time.  Assemble a make shift cast, throw on a cubs jersey and boom - Rookie of the Year.  Everyone will know who you are, if they don't, they don't deserve to be in your space.

Anchorman crew: This is another pretty obvious/trendy costume idea since the new Anchorman 2 is coming out soon. Are you as excited as we are?

Sabrina the Teenage witch: Couldn't find a cat sitter for Halloween? No problem.  Just bring him/her along, wear a blonde wig and act really cutesy and precious and boom you are Sabrina the Teenage Witch.  I am pretty sure that most bars allow cats.  If you unsure make up a fake ID for you cat prior to leaving.  It's halloween, there's so many costumes floating around, the bouncers probably won't realize the cat is in fact a cat, not a very little person in a cat costume.

The WIggles: Are you a group of 4 really creepy dudes?  Does one of you own a red shirt? Does another one own a yellow one?  How about a purple one? Oh and a blue one too.  Learn a song  or two and you are golden.
The Wiggles:
Are you a group of 4 really creepy dudes? Does one of you own a red shirt? Does another one own a yellow one? How about a purple one? Oh and a blue one too. That’s all you need to dress as these 4 creepers. Bonus points if you learn a song or two!

You are welcome.  In advance.  You are going to read this post and then bake me some damn good cookies.   (chocolate chip with skor bits would be ideal).  Have you ever thought to yourself, jeepers this latte from starbucks is expensive… I could probably be doing something so much better with my money?  Well now, I can assure you that 5 dollars can pretty much get you anything you want.  Anything.  Maybe not a hooker…atleast not legally (yet).  Are you a struggling artist that needs a song written for you?  BOOM five dollars, it’s yours.  Are you a struggling parent in desperate need of a creepy guy wishing your child a happy birthday?  BOOM five dollars it’s yours. Have you ever wanted someone to write a specific message on a plate using only ketchup and mustard?  I sure have.  BOOM it’s yours for only 5 dollars!  Seriously this site (Fiverr.com) is probably the best thing to come to in the interweb since Designchicks. Check it out, I guarantee you will waste a lot of time.  Laura and I are going to check into it further.  We will let you know when we make our first purchase.


Aries: Wear a skinny tie today.  A thick tie will make you seem to mischievous and untrustworthy  (like a Leo).

Libra: Stop wearing purple lipstick. it makes you look like a hooker. for real.

Taurus: Tell your co-worker that they have something on their face. Laugh at them.  When they go to the washroom to fix themselves up.. go on their facebook and change their status to “I like to bathe in Philadelphia cream cheese”

Scorpio: WHAT?! no way! sorry my pyschic senses just told me something crazy thats going to happen to you. I cant tell you though. okay I can. It rhymes with merpes. you better get that checked.

Gemini: Take a bath today.  Try cream cheese instead of water.  You may get stuck so keep a cell phone handy to call for paramedics.

Cancer: Stop wearing sunglasses at night. they make you look like a douchebag, like people with those tweety bird-steering wheel covers, or neighbours with above-ground pools that take up their entire backyard. idiots.

Leo: Do not speak to anyone today that is wearing a large hat.  They are smuggling illegal  potato bugs  from Africa.

Virgo: Take a cooking class tonight.  Bring your own pots and pans, hair net, spoons, pet lobster and the first season of  Hells Kitchen or Full House on DVD.

Sagittarius: Go on a 30 hour famine for 2 hours. what? thats ridiculous, you say. well you know whats ridiculous? your ears.

Capricorn: Do not give up on your dreams.  Marilyn Denis wants to talk to you.  I have no idea why. Perhaps you hit her car or you are pregnant with her sons baby.  I don’t know all the facts, but I know she wants to talk to you.

Aquarius: people are talking about you behind your back. no really, look behind you, they are having a really great conversation.

Pisces: Comment on a blog post today.  Try this one.  Use the alias Melba Lee Toast.

Ophiuchus: you’re really bad at accents. stop doing them.


You’ve stopped taking birth control.  You have discussed wanting to have a baby with your significant other. You and your partner are both aware and ready for the sleepless nights ahead. You are ready for a baby. It’s time to get pregnant, right?

Wrong.  Dead wrong.

Most women don’t think about what having a baby will do to their lives.  They don’t realize the detrimental effect it will have on their fashion sense. Not everyone knows that a baby does not typically match their  favourite outfit. Most moms that carry around their babies in those baby knapsack things look like total and utter douches and they will likely end up on What Not to Wear! I know what your thinking, time to tie the tubes and settle for buying a cat.  Wrong!  Cats aren’t fashionable either (haven’t you ever watched Hoarders?)   Also, the amazing japanese inventors have done it once again, they have solved all your baby fashion nightmares.  These lovely baby sweaters come in a variety of colours and fabrics.  How styling (and not at all creepy) !!


Laura and I both know what it’s like to be stuck in a stuffy office all day.  You know that song, “Everybody’s working for the weekend”  that song was basically wrote about us.  Anyways, sometimes we are so busy that we don’t have time to step outside and get some fresh air.  It’s can be really difficult because some people we work with have the bad case of bratwurst feet and it gets really stankin stanky in here.  Laura and I jumped for joy when we found out about this miraculous japanese invention.  The fashionable fresh air mask.  How convenient.  Just put this bad boy on your desk, attach it to your face and as Faith Hill would say, “Just Breathe”.  It’s as simple as that.  You could literally live in a basement full of cats or rats like this guy and you’d would be totally fresh and fine.


Ever gotten ready for bed, and climbed in only to realize that you have forgotten your pillow?
Ever at work and lay your head down on your desk for a few minutes, only to wake up to a pounding headache…because you didnt have…a pillow?
Ever go to a club and meet a really great guy, but couldn’t go home with him cause you didn’t bring your pillow?! and you watched as he took home the girl at the end of the bar who happened to have one. sucks to be you.

Well that girl was smart, cause she had Pillo.m.g. A full functioning, 100% cotton, stain resistant pillow that attaches to your head so you will never face those embarassing moments when you say “damn, I shoulda brought my pillow”. Like when you go for your morning run, and halfway through you just need to nap, but you’re too far from home, so you lay down on the bench and rest your head on an elderly mans lap and you contract lice. shoulda brought your pillow!

So wear this baby everywhere and your life will improve by 0.05%! look at this girl! she is SUPER happy! She’s about to hit up da club and party hard!  you go girl!


Most people don’t know this but Justin Bieber is actually of Japanese descent. Some may say he hails from Stratford Ontario, but those folks are wrong. Dead wrong.

Justin Bieber is a talented little japanese man. He can sing, he can dance, he can rock a side-swipe-douche-do like no other.  Justin wanted to try something new and fresh.  Something that had never been done before.  His mom suggested a wig line, his dad suggested a shirt that makes you look like you have absolutely no body definition.  He shunned them both and decided to take on the most logical venture: a nail polish line.

Now, most of you might say that there have been many nail polish lines in the past.  To this I say, true, but have these said nail polish lines had the tears of a baby, the sweat of one less lonely girl and the chest hair of (future) Beiber himself. Nine! (that means no in German and possibly Japanese)
